Many goals remain through December 2015
Campaign Georgia Tech will conclude in December 2015. But as 2014 drew to a close, something remarkable had happened: the $1.5 billion goal had been met.
The Campaign is the largest in the Institute's history. it is twice the size of the previous campaign, which was twice the size of its predecessor. In spite of reaching this milestone more than a year ahead of schedule, the vision and the drive behind Campaign Georgia Tech continue unabated, and will not subside until 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2015. Many goals, and much work, are yet to be completed between now and then:
- Every college and school reaching their individual goals
- Creating 100 new endowed chairs and professorships
- Ensuring that all colleges have a named Dean's Chair
- Completing the funding for three major Athletics renovation projects: Noonan Golf Facility, Russ Chandler Stadium, and the Edge Center
- Naming at least one more college or school
"Knowing that we hit our overall goal well before the end of the Campaign timetable is exciting. It is an impressive accomplishment for Georgia Tech," said John F. Brock III, ChE 1970, MS ChE 1971, Campaign co-chair. "We are looking forward to carrying the momentum of our success thus far into the last year of the Campaign," added fellow co-chair Mary Rockett Brock, Honorary Alumna. "I have no doubt that it's going to be the best year yet."
"We are very grateful to the Brocks for their tireless energy and commitment in leading the public phase of Campaign Georgia Tech," said President G.P. "Bud" Peterson. "Reaching the $1.5 billion goal a year early is a testimony not only to their leadership, but to the ongoing engagement and loyalty of the entire Georgia Tech community. Together, we are pressing forward to accomplish all of our major Campaign goals in the remaining year so that the entire campus may celebrate the success."
